WEBSTAR - Ship Ticket Reservation System

Description

Lakshadweep is an archipelago consisting of 10 inhabited islands widely scattered in the Arabian Sea and hence geographically isolated. The main mode of transport for the common man in the islands is ship service and Shipping has become truly the lifeline of people of Lakshadweep. All the thirteen port offices of the Administration have been interconnected, extending the NICNET’s communication network. This network has enabled Web-based ship ticket reservation and cargo booking systems. The ship schedules, ship ticket availability, status of ship tickets are now available through internet providing maximum transparency and easy access. Tickets for any ship from “anywhere to anywhere basis” can be booked through the authorized booking counters at Kochi, Kozhikode(Mainland) and in any of the islands. The application ensures that the entire rural population in the remote territory of Lakshadweep islands is getting the same opportunity for making ship ticket reservation. Ship Ticket Reservation System, keeping abreast of the developments in ICT has made the life of people of Lakshadweep simpler. It has been running seamlessly over a period of time and some of the recent enhancements include  Display boards  SMS alerts/messages  Facility of cancellation of ship tickets through SMS  SMS based queries.  More judicious allotment of cabins etc.
